Challenge

To supplement the existing fresh air cooling system that was proving inadequate on very hot days, leading to equipment failures, by providing mechanical cooling to the radio and television transmitters that operate 24 / 7 in outside temperatures that can regularly rise as high as 45 ºC (+ 113 ºF).

Solution: Climate Wizard Supplementary Cooling

Climate Wizard was installed as supplementary cooling to boost the cooling effect of the existing fresh air mechanical ventilation systems. Cooled Climate Wizard air was ducted directly to the problem hot-spots within the building in order to avoid equipment shutdowns on very hot days. Due to the remote territory and lack of reticulated water, the system was designed to operate year round on rainwater harvested and stored on site.
